Get fit. Have fun. Be Fierce.

Do you need to work off a few holiday bottles of Champagne and a tin or two of shortbread cookies or was your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight? Sure, you could hit the gym and sweat to your oldies workout routines, or you could do something completely new and different that also gives you some useful skills. Your call. Here’s what’s going to make us slim and trim in the coming weeks:
